Admittedly this one is unlikely to be useful to many, but it could still serve as a useful example for Selenium 2. Also, I haven’t posted an example since alpha 5 was released.

I’m getting married in a few short weeks, and our gift list has now opened for any guests that would like to buy us something for the occasion. We debated over having a list in the first place, but in the end decided that it was probably for the best. One of our hesitations was that we didn’t want to know what people had bought for us before the day, and having an online gift list makes it possible to ‘spoil’ the surprise.

With the list only having been open a couple of days, the temptation was already pretty difficult to resist and we decided that it was okay to see what has been bought just so long as we don’t find out who’s bought what. Unfortunately this isn’t easy on the site as they’re listed together, so I was sneakily able to construct an XPath that extracted the necessary information. I’ve now combined into a Selenium 2 example using Java, which can be found below.

package giftlist;

import java.util.List;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

public class GiftList {

	private static WebDriver driver;
	private static final String GIFT_LIST_NUMBER = "123546";
	private static final String GIFT_LIST_PASSWORD = "password";

	public static void main(String [ ] args) {
		//open browser
		driver = new FirefoxDriver();

		//set implicit wait
		driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(20, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

		driver.findElement(By.linkText("Manage your list")).click();
		driver.findElement(By.linkText("Display List")).click();

		//get purchased items
		driver.findElement(By.linkText("Gifts purchased")).click();
		driver.findElement(By.xpath("//h1[text()='Gifts purchased by guests']"));
		List<WebElement> purchasedItems = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//tr[td[2] and @class='item']"));

		//output purchased items
		for (WebElement item : purchasedItems) {

		//log out
		driver.findElement(By.linkText("Log out")).click();

		//close browser
